EMERGENCY TRAVEL RESOURCES
ARE YOU A RUNAWAY?

The National Runaway Hotline operates a "Home Free" program in conjunction with Greyhound
Bus Line that will reunite you with your family. They offer other services as well to runaways that's worth checking out including a message service.  United Airlines is also the official airline of this organization.

Since 1995, the Home Free program has helped over 16,000 families by providing free bus tickets.  To get a free ticket home, a person must be between the ages of 12 and 21, must call the NRS helpline (1-800-RUNAWAY). They also must be named on a runaway report and be willing to return to their family. The family or guardian also needs to agree to receive them at home.  If the individual hoping to return home is under the age of 15, Home Free also provides a free ticket for the child's parent or guardian.  A person can only get a ticket home through the program twice!

Using their own time and general aviation aircraft, pilot volunteers from the many public benefit flying organizations help hundreds of people each month. They and many other non-flying volunteers work to transport patients in need to facilities where they are able to receive medical attention they might otherwise have to do without. Many groups also play a significant role providing disaster and emergency relief, serving our veterans, flying for environmental support, transporting animals, taking youth on educational flights, or performing other community service missions.

Air Charity Network
Phone: 877-621-7177
Website: http://aircharitynetwork.org/home/passengers/qualifications
Requirements
All adult passengers must be ambulatory. Most of our pilot’s planes are 4 or 6 seat, non-pressurized general aviation aircraft. Getting in and out of one may be compared to getting
in and out of the back seat of a small car. Therefore, all passengers must be able to sit upright
for the duration of the flight and wear a seat belt.
Compelling Reason
There may also be some reason why private aircraft is the only option over commercial transportation. For example, if an individual lives in a rural area without easy access to commercial transportation, or a person is highly susceptible to infection and cannot be
exposed to crowds, or if someone cannot afford commercial transportation.
&
While there is no formula for screening passengers, we must still determine, at our discretion, whether there is a demonstrated financial reason that conventional transportation cannot be used. You will be required to provide information regarding your financial situation, including
your income. We must also be able to verify with a third party, such as a social worker or doctor, that there is truly a need for our services.
Medical Condition
Passengers must be medically stable, ambulatory, and be able to sit up in an airplane seat for
the duration of the flight. Our pilots are not medically trained. We are not an air ambulance service, nor do we provide medical assistance during our flights. Medical Release Passengers
will be required to provide a medical release signed by their local physician indicating the passenger has a satisfactory medical condition to take the flight. We will fax the release from
our office to your local physician.

If you have a medical need for long-distance transportation to receive treatment but cannot
afford to travel, we can help. We understand the financial burden associated with serious illness, especially when it causes a loss of income. Even though health insurance may cover the cost
of treatment, it rarely covers transportation to a distant medical center.
&
That’s where we come in. Wings of Mercy bridges this gap, providing free air transportation to qualified patients. Our FAA-certified pilots are dedicated to getting you where you need to go,
east of the Rocky Mountains. Approved patients involved in clinical trials or multiple appointments can contact us for a flight referral any time of year; we just need to verify your eligibility annually.
